Skip to comments.Fast and Furious Update: Rep. Issa Tells Holder to Expect More Hearings
Posted on 12/20/2011 10:22:54 AM PST by Nachum
Late yesterday, House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issas office sent me an email with a copy of a letter the Congressman had sent to Attorney General Eric Holder on December 15 a letter to which the A.G. has yet to respond. In it, Issa informs Holder that the Committee would like him to appear for more testimony on January 24, 2012.
In other words, Fast and Furious isnt going away any time soon.
The hearing will examine flaws in the management structure of the Justice Department as demonstrated in the genesis and implementation of ATFs Operation Fast and Furious. Specifically, the hearing will focus on what senior Department officials could and should have done to put a stop to this reckless program, as well as the specific areas where failures in communication and management occurred.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Get him Darrell!
Merry “holiday” to Holder from Issa:
“Issa informs Holder that the Committee would like him to appear for more testimony on January 24, 2012. “
Or how does this work: A field office can let thousands of guns walk across international borders on its own authority? Really?
Just keep poking that hornet’s nest with a stick. They’ll get pissed off soon and screw up royally. Get the popcorn.
It’s all BS-theater until these boobs go to prison. I don’t expect that to happen. All show, no substance.
ISSA, That’s all well and good. But don’t forget to find how who gave the orders to implement this fiasco. I believe you will have to subpeona obama’s cabinet to find that answer.
Bangedy, bang, bang! Ping.
“will examine flaws in the management structure of the Justice Department
Or how does this work: A field office can let thousands of guns walk across international borders on its own authority? Really? “
Needed to be repeated!
Exactly. Issa is worse than worthless because he gave the impression he was actually going to do something. Another nutless wonder...
Holder is delaying his case till the election, hoping YObama will win. He calls us cowards and defies our laws knowing that if he goes down, so will YObama.
What flaws in the process? Doesn’t Issa get it? F&F went as planned. The only flaw was that they got caught.
Who's going to indict them...God?
No, it is not. Issa is playing for the cameras. He knows nothing will come of this. If there was to be anything there is plenty of evidence already to make charges stick.
Hearings can go on forever without any action. Time to round them all up with a one way ticket to Levenworth.
And it doesn’t have one durn ting about Eric Holer -or his bunk buddy Obummer being black. It has everything with a stupid plan to destroy the second amendment rights that got people dead.Oh and there was no typo in the names.
No one ever said it had a thing to do with race.
It has to do with breaking the law and to do with trying to set the stage for gun confiscation.
It has to do with Dead Americans and Mexican nationals for political gain.
Has the Justice dept ever proved that they got approval to move those guns to Mexico from the state dept?
The state dept says they have no record that the justice dept applied for an export license.
Ergo... they broke the law.
LOL. What an infantile understanding of law, the world, or anything.
What runs your world? The "Shazam" Fairy?
Houses just appear at the swing of a wand?
paulcissa: "Until I'm sitting my fatass on the couch watching TV, all this "concrete pouring" and "framing" and "wiring" and "plumbing" and "Drywall" and "painting" and "carpet laying" and such is all show, no substance."
OH NOES, not the Angry Letter! How severe is that??
I have another theory about this. I think Issa has a lot more than anyone knows but he’s waiting until it gets closer to the election to drop the hammer. Less time for Obama to react. Can we say “October Surprise”?
Oh, bull; he, just like SlickWillie, will let them talk themselves into a state of mastubatory multi-orgasm. These creeps are all teflon coated. This ‘big bad hearing’ will be lost in obscurity, and the whole damned bunch will skate into obscurity while Joe Arpaio goes into the fire for covering the collective Southwestern U.S. a$$. Anyone caught voting for a Democrat candidate for anything should be deported. LayLowO CANNOT be re-elected, at any cost.
These type of information attacks rarely do much good. The ONLY thing that does good is an arrest or impeachment.
Holder: “They’re pickin’ on me ‘cause I’m black”
No reasonable person ever said it had anything to do with race. But Eric Holder has said the only reason anybody is attacking him or Obama is because they hate black men.
Here is something that was just leaked to the public domain that cinches up the noose quite a bit.
Several people are painted into corners from which there is no escape other than full disclosure for immunity.
Will CSPAN carry the hearings?
Issa needs to confine the questioning to only F&F concerns otherwise all the Dems on the committee will use their time to change the subject and praise Holder.
Even if they shined a searchlight up Holder’s ass, they will never find a brain, a conscience, or brotherly-love.
THey might find a copy of the Black Reparationist’s manual, the teaching of James Cone and Charles Ogltree, Das Kapital, and the selected quotes of Louis Farrakhan.
Issa is doing a “Death by a thousand cuts” on Holder, Brauer, and eventually Obama. He can stretch the hearings out for months, or even years, each time revealing more about the Fast & Furious fiasco, plus collateral operations and screw-ups.
This keeps the spotlight on Holder, DOJ, Obama, ICE, ATF, etc.
Any major expose’ at the time of the Democratic Convention would be a kick in the balls of Obama and the Demonrats.
Timing is everything.
We need many more with Issa’s determination and spirit!
You are correct.
Except....... August Surprise, September surprise October surprise.
The real bombs will explode after the Democrat Convention
You might very well be correct.
>What flaws in the process? Doesnt Issa get it? F&F went as planned. The only flaw was that they got caught.<
They never expected that ATF agents would go to congress and rat them out. They figured that they could intimidate and control them like they are the FBI agents who have yet to come forward.
>No, it is not. Issa is playing for the cameras. He knows nothing will come of this. If there was to be anything there is plenty of evidence already to make charges stick.<
There is enough evidence on Holder yes. But if you have followed really close what has happened. Last week Issa asked him at what level does holder have to sign off on things. Did sending guns across the boarder to another country demand his signature?
He is pushing the international angel now and treaties being broken. He also went after personal e-mails in the last few weeks.
They are trying to get Obama wrapped up in all of this as well showing that he had knowledge and authorized this. THEN they will do something, hopefully with the support of a republican controlled senate and congress.
Men who would smuggle 3,000 military guns to Mexican drug-traffickers:
—>Would they also have any problem with, say, blowing up a federal building?<—
A famous rich slob created a small, insane cottage-industry by asking that of the World Trade Center —I’ve never gone in for any of that. I think they’re a little nuts.
And so now I think it sounds crazy to ask the question, but you know what? A year ago I would also have deemed it crazy, simply to ponder if the ATF could get into the business of smuggling military weapons to drug-dealers.
And yet they DID.
But the more I think about OKC, the more I remember ATF agents alleging they’d been trapped in elevators that had dropped several stories, of heroically prying open the doors, etc —claims later show to be IMPOSSIBLE.
—>How many still think the federal government could not have had ANYTHING to do with OkBomb? The more I compare F&F to OkBomb, the more parallels I see. <—
If they are headed for Obama they had better realize that the Republicans didn’t go after Cinton when they had a perfect chance. I just don’t see them as an establishment, Issa excluded here, but as the RNC, I just don’t see them getting any guts and doing anything about it. They are about winning elections and gaining power and money as much as the Democrats and most couldn’t care less about this country.
If Issa proves me wrong and goes all the way I’ll be happy to buy him a dinner anywhere he wants.
>If they are headed for Obama they had better realize that the Republicans didnt go after Cinton when they had a perfect chance.<
Clinton was lying to congress .. that was all that they had really. Yes it is a crime. It is even a felony. But this is not even in the same category. This is bigger than Iran Contra. This is bigger than Watergate.
This is arming terrorists.
This is shipping guns across boarders.
This is directly related to the murder of two United States federal Law Enforcement Officers, dozens of Mexican law Enforcement Oficers and hundreds of Mexican Civilians to date.
This is FAR and BEYOND simple lying to congress my FRiend.
Give Issa time to dot the “i”’s and cross the “t”’s and nail the coffin shut.
There may be a Hillary and a Janet wrapped up in there, too. (State/DHS)
The pattern is there. Dissapearing John Does, Blame the white guys, ignore possible islamic connections, Blame it all on ‘homegrown terrorism’, push to keep/increase gun control, and the emotional smokescreen that it was because of Waco which took some of the wind out of the sails of that investigation. Holder was US Attorney for DC at the time, and later Deputy AG under Janet Reno under Clinton, following Jamie Gorelick.
